Music majors at have the option to study abroad for a semester or summer term.

Siena International Music Program

This program, held at the end of spring semester, is the only study abroad program hosted by the College of Music. Around a dozen students spend six weeks in Siena, Italy, learning about music and art and performing in the region that saw the birth of the Renaissance. This program is in partnership with the Accademia Musicale Chigiana. For more information, email Program Director Charles Wetherbee.
